Bowser is a community on the east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Approximately 66 km north of Nanaimo, Bowser is in a region informally known as Lighthouse Country, spanning a stretch of highway that extends from Qualicum Beach in the south to Horne Lake to the west and Fanny Bay in the north and east to Denman and Hornby Islands. Bowser is in the Regional District of Nanaimo and in its Electoral Area H, one of eight in the District. The community was named after William J. Bowser, Premier of British Columbia from 1915 to 1916.Bowser's local hotel was famous in the 1930s for a dog trained by his owners to deliver beer bottles to tables, receive the payment, and deliver change, a feat listed in "Ripley's Believe It Or Not". A regular customer of the Bowser Hotel was Jack Holt, a veteran of the Boer War who was Bowser's postmaster from the period during World War I until the late 1950s.Sources"Bowser."Encyclopedia of British Columbia.2000Bowser, British Columbia, Canada.
